I'm rating this book as the entire series. My average star rating is 4.6 so I'm rounding up. I feel like to do this review justice I'll review the book itself and then throw in my thoughts on the whole series just for good measure. Let's begin shall we...

A.M. Hudson has outdone herself! Silence is everything a great book should be! As the last installment of The Dark Secrets Series I wasn't sure how to feel, but Silence by far surpassed all of my expectations. The characters in this book are so well rounded and easy to love. It feels like I've known them for years, and, though, I am sad to say goodbye, it was one hell of a ride!

It is bitter sweet when knowing a series you have to come to love and cherish is ending, but Hudson left nothing to po

I received an ARC of Silence from Author AM Hudson in exchange for an honest review.
I began this series, as I have with many others, thinking to pass the time and hopefully enjoy a decently good story. I had read so many books and series that only a few ever left me with an impression of any kind. This series has definitely left me with an impression! From the beginning with Dark Secrets I was drawn in to this amazing world with characters that seemed to leap off the page and snare me in their w

**I was given an ARC in exchange for an honest review**

This is a really hard review for me to write. I feel like I'm writing a eulogy for my best friend's funeral. The Dark Secrets Series has been a major part of my life over the last couple of years, and to see it end is heart wrenching. I am normally disappointed when a series ends, but this time it is so much more. I am completely and totally gutted! AM Hudson reached deep into my soul and grabbed on tight, bonding me with David, Ara, Jason,

This book satisfies a spot on my #SFvFBingo reading challenge. I’m putting it on Bite Me. It also counts towards my Finishing the Series Challenge we are hosting. Now, it says its the final book in this series but on the amazon page it shows one more, however, it is categorized as a novel length epilogue and I am not reading that.

Honestly I read this series sooooo long ago I barely remembered it when I started. The series is very detailed and I forgot how

In what was supposed to be the last book, Silence book # 6, Ara had to find a way to save her unborn daughter, battled the evil witch, faced a betrayal from her 'father' before finally got what she longed for - A happy life with her loved one, living outside the Manor raising her family like a normal person. But I was still left wondering when I got into the last page about Elora's soul mate (I think it would be Eric), and there's still question about Jason's welfare. After all that he'd been th ...more

Finishing Silence was in a way bittersweet for me. This series came recommended by a newly found book blogger friend. I crashed so hard into Ara and David’s world that even as I started down the dark and twisted road of their entwining lives I never knew that a single book or in this case a series would shape the way I think about story telling. Silence as the part 2 conclusion of th series really came at a strange time in life as I battled personal demons. Picking up Silence, hone

Since this review is about the last book in this series, I need to start this review on how my journey began. I got the first book in this series for free off of amazon. I absolutely loved the first book and jumped right into the next book. The story started to change into something different than what I expected, but I liked it. As the books progressed, I had to keep going back to reread parts from other books to keep information straight in my head. There's just so much going on in Ara and Da

Silence the epic ending.

Epic can be described as extremely awesome, monumental, and magnificent.

Silence is nothing short, of epic.

It all comes down to this. Will the ambitious Queen Ara be able to save her King, his brother, and the unborn Princess? Will her past sins be discovered and punished by her people? Will she and those she cares so deeply about make it out alive and finally be able to grab the happy ending that has been just out of reach this entire time?

I can't tell you how many tim

In true AM Hudson fashion, she has written an astonishing, emotional finale to her Dark Secrets Series. Silence brought all of the pieces of my heart back into play. With each book in this series, I found I was leaving pieces of my heart littered about as each one unfolded. She made me cry, made me angry, made me frustrated, and made me love. These books came at a time in my life, when I needed them desperately. AM Hudson gave me a reason to get up each morning while recovering from several surg ...more
Silence: Echoes & Silence part 2 marks the end of A.M. Hudson's Dark Secrets--a series I've been a following from day one and spent countless hours fan-girling over with my sister. The average rating for this final book is 4.80, so I feel a little bad about my 3 star rating, but it is what it is...

Here's the thing with series finales: I either LOVE them or I'm bitterly disappointed. I've read countless series in the past and it just seems that there's rarely any other reaction. There have b

I was given an arc of this book in return for an honest review.

I rarely write a review straight after finishing a book, and I sit here writing this one with tears in my eyes and a heavy heart. I knew reading the last installment would be extremely bitter sweet as I really didn't want this story to come to an end... But as far as endings so, this one was epic!!

Before I get into my review, let me just say if you haven't read this series you are missing out!! Go get Dark Secrets and take a sensational ride!
When I finished Silence I had to take some time to unravel all the emotions that I experienced through reading the final book of the series.... Angie requested an honest review, and although I loved the rest of the series I wasn't sure how she could tie up every loose end and not seem as if it was rushed or thrown together.... But she did and it was A

AMHudson does it again. The book gives you everything you wanted and more..... yet leaves just a little unanswered for possible more works from this amazing writer! So many questions answered in so many ways and some GREAT surprises.
Sometimes when you read some books you can relate to the situations. Well, with this book there are situations with love, friendship, hate, revenge, humor, and mystery. There has to be at least one storyline from the book that anyone reading it can relate to! I cried

Perfect ending!!!

A.M. Hudson does a wonderful job bringing this series to an end. Beautifully written closure for characters that everyone has come to know and love. I am almost sorry that the series is at an end but I must say that everything in this book was summed up beautifully. In true A.M. Hudson fashion the characters in this series have gone through tremendous growth since the first book. Ara and her choices are very relatable this time around but fear not, there is no lack of plot twist

This is the final book in the Series and it was Amazing, exciting, heart-stopping, and surprising and the best Vampire story out there. It needs to be made into a movie. One can only hope.
Yes I am Team David since the beginning. This is a Love story that had David and Ara fighting since the beginning and against every person in the word to be together. Through highest of highs and the lowest of lows some how they worked through it. So many questions are final answered and quit a few of them were

I thought this book was phenomenal! This probably isn’t the right way to do this but I could not stop long enough to give each book their own review. I honestly think they should make a movie about this series. It literally drew me into it where I didn’t want to stop reading it for anything.
I fell in love with Jace, of course but still came to love David too.
I love the longer books! The more pages there are the better I like them and these characters literally came alive for me making me feel ev

Still the best love story ever told!

This book ripped right in to the truths the twists,lies and deceit.
Oh how my heart felt ripped out and broken,tears flowed for the characters I have grown to love as family.
The brilliance and pure excitement this story gives is one of kind,everything you love about the human,paranormal and fantasy world is right in this series.

Great wrap up!

I’ve enjoyed this series a lot more than I expected to. Amazon has been recommending I read it for a while and I finally gave in. So glad I did!! I loved seeing Ara grow and bloom into a tough queen and mother. I’m sad to see it end, but was very happy with the way everything was done.
I will be picking up more books by this author!

This was incredible! I loved it! It. Was. Absolutely. Insane! I'm still processing everything that happened I can't believe Vampirie, and all the things revealed about Drake. Just awesome! I can't wait to start the next book!

Kinda felt like the last several chapters of this book could have been its own story. Everything seemed pretty concluded from the original storyline but the end felt like it’s own story. Still curious about Walter. Not sure why that loose string was left open.
I was kind of taken aback by this book purely for the fact that it was so slow. All the other books were so catching, that this one didn't grab me like the others. It ended on a good note and I'm glad I didn't give up on the series like I thought I was going to.

Before starting this book, I reread all the previous installments to prepare myself for what was to come.

I was also given an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Unlike some characters in this book my review will be completely honest and will not spare your feelings or hide things to protect you. I will however try to keep my review spoiler free.

This book is about truths. Truths that were hidden and now uncovered and truths you never knew you needed to know until now.

Do you think you can handle
3.5 stars

I finished this book a couple of days ago and have such mixed feelings about it. I loved the overall story of this series. There were so many twists and turns. There were characters I loved and those I wanted to slap. Ms. Hudson has a gift for weaving a very interesting, complex tale. However, all of the books in this series tend to go on and on, including tons of unnecessary scenes. You definitely get your money's worth, but sometimes, less is more, and this last book held true to form

Anybody who loves vampire books should read this series of books. There are so many layers of lies upon lies told in this book, it's a wonder anybody knows what the truth is except of course the originator of all the lies. Ara-Rose or Amara stars in these books along with her true love, David, and his twin brother Jason who is also Ara-Rose's soulmate along with David for reasons that are explained in the book. They talk about the Original Vampire, the vampire who created all other vampires and ...more

I honestly do not know where to start. This series kept me on an emotional roller coaster from the beginning to end. I found myself wanting to throw my e-reader across the room at certain points. I was selected to review this book by A. M. Hudson and was super excited. Then I realized this was book 7 in the series that I had not even started. Needless to say I dove in immediately determined to finish them so I can give an honest review.

When I began reading Silence I was happy that David and Ara

I am sad to say. I am disappointed in this book. I know I will be one of the only ones to say so. And my opinion will be unpopular but I have a right to say it. The last 2 books could have been so much better. And once I got past the unnecessary drivel of tainted nasty porn pages I had to flip through just to find any sense of a story I was looking for, some of it did pick up towards the end. Which thankfully was found in the last pages of the this last book but it was almost too late. Cause thi ...more

I had to sit on my review for a bit to let the story really sink in. I've been a huge fan of this series since first reading book one years ago, when it was actually two books, before the author combined them into the huge Dark Secrets we have now.
There couldn't have been a more epic conclusion to this story. Without giving up spoilers, it's impossible to go into detail, but the baby, Jason, who Drake really is, who Lord Eden really is and his real motives, the best reconciliation between David
